My name is Dave Spencer. I've been in radio 35 years, 33 of them at WBKR. In my free time, my guy Tom and I like to head out on road trips--big or small. Always gotta make sure the automobile is in tip-top shape because, truth be told, I love to drive just as much as I did when I was 16. I love small road trips. I like big ones; I have five more states to visit and then I will have been to all 50. I love planning visits to cool quirky places throughout the country. I'm a big fan of college sports. I love good restaurants that offer a nice vegan/seafood selection as I've been on that kind of diet since June and have lost weight and just feel so much better. On the road trip flipside, I'm also a big fan of a good recliner and a binge-worthy streaming series.
